Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Announcing the Official Release of My New Book November 22, 2010

I am very excited indeed to announce the official release of my new book I’m Taking My Eggs and Going Home: How One Woman Dared to Say No to Motherhood.

It’s currently available in e-book format from and, and next month it will also be available in the good old-fashioned printed version. You can be sure I’ll let you know when that happens.

If you’re an e-reader type or just can’t wait for the printed version, I’m offering the book at a special price for Life Without Baby readers. Download the book from Smashwords and use the code FB35D to get it half price – $4.95 instead of $9.95.

If you do read it, and love it, please tell everyone. If you read and don’t love it, please just tell me.

We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow, but for today, it’s all about the book.

    Congratulations!!! How exciting!!! I’m so anxious to read it I might have to download it, but I love books. Guess I’ll just have to get both!

    Congratulations again!

      I couldn’t wait. I downloaded it, read it, and I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!!! Did I mention I loved it??? I’ll be buying copies for family and friends. Not only is it poignant, it is a beautiful love story! Can’t wait for it to come out in print so I can read it again with my husband. My emotional journey has been SO similar to yours it was amazing to connect to a story so closely. Thank you for sharing it with the world!

        Sue, thank you. You made me tear up in a meeting today. (That will teach me to read my email when I’m supposed to be paying attention to something else.)

        I can’t tell you how much your comments mean to me. More than once I’ve asked myself “why did I bother writing this stupid book anyway?” and you’ve just provided the answer. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for that.

    Let me add my congratulations to the arrival of your new book. Yes, I want to buy a hard copy and hopefully, with your autograph, too. I hope you are planning a book signing – YES? Again, congratulations!

    • lmanterfield Says:

      Yes! 🙂 I will definitely be getting out into the world and hopefully in your direction. It would be really great to actually meet you in person after talking online for so long. Thanks for your support and encouragement.

    Congratulations, Lisa! The cover is fantastic by the way. Can’t wait to read the story inside. Again congrats on an amazing accomplishment and for adding yet another much needed voice on this topic!

  6. Jennifer Gill Says:

    Sorry it took me this long to respond, but congratulations on the book, Lisa! I will order my copy today.

    In other news, happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for you and the safe haven you give to all of us here! I hope everyone can find a little corner of the holiday to feel comfortable in…

    Yay! What a great title. I am buying it now. Congratulations!!!

  8. Lu Says:

    I can’t wait to read this. I’ve heard such good things about your writings. I love the cover and the title.

    I also have a book coming out – in just a few weeks about trying to find the lighter side of getting pregnant/infertility – kind of a girlfriend’s guide to pre-pregnancy.

    I think these kinds of books are very important for child-free and infertile gals.

    Thank you

  11. Sonja Lewis Says:

    Congratulations Lisa,

    Sorry I didn’t say so earlier. Been in US for Thanksgiving and just settling back in to life in London. Anyhow, am going to download e-book and look forward to reading it.

    I will happily review on my website. Let me know if there is anything else I can do. Best, Sonja
